Galvin’s pay raise defense leaves out key details

Dear Editor: In Representative Galvin’s letter to the editor in last week’s Canton Citizen, he makes a good argument from his perspective concerning the difficulty in setting legislative pay increases. But I think he protests too much. His omissions in his arguments stand out like a sore thumb. One simply has to search Ballotpedia.org to […]

Show DCR your support for a Canton rink

Dear Editor: Last Thursday, I attended the South Shore Ice Rink Feasibility Study meeting in Norwood. It is clear that Norwood is just as committed to building an ice rink as Canton is to rebuilding Ponky. We must demonstrate to the Department of Conservation and Recreation our dedication to the sport and the urgent need […]

Letters reveal hypocrisy of Trump critics

Dear Editor: While reading the responses in last week’s edition I couldn’t help but notice the use of the word ‘disgust’ in describing the character and policies of our new president.

President Trump demonstrated that he is a climate change denier by […]

Women’s marchers: No apology needed

Editor’s note: In response to a recent Canton Citizen story on the Women’s March on Washington, reader Larry Overlan requested an apology for statements made about President Donald Trump. Below are the responses from the two women who were featured in the original story. *** Dear Editor: Larry Overlan, I will be happy to apologize […]

No consistency with Trump supporter’s remarks

Dear Editor: I read with amusement Larry Overlan’s letter admonishing Nancy Bloom and Susan Johnson for their “vicious statements” in reference to Donald Trump. He went onto say, “Such awful, unsubstantiated comments do a disservice to our country’s president.” My question for Mr. Overlan is this: where was your outrage when Donald Trump spent five […]
